If you havent' seen Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead," then that's probably why you aren't walking around red-eyed and shellshocked today. Anyone who hasn't caught up yet, should stop reading now. Go have a nice, festive St. Patrick's Day. Everyone else will be spending the day trying to recover from the particularly bleak doings on "The Grove," a.k.a. the "Of Mice and Men" episode in which the series said goodbye to two of its child actors in particularly brutal fashion.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels walked off into their lone off day of the spring. Kole Calhoun hit a walk-off home run Monday, powering the Angels to an 8-7 victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Angels took a 6-3 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning, but the Giants scored four runs off Joe Smith. The Angels signed Smith to a three-year, $15.75-million contract last winter after watching their bullpen blow too many leads last season. The runs were all unearned, and Smith would have worked a 1-2-3 ninth had shortstop Grant Green not committed an error on a ground ball.

Frozen Disney/Buena Vista, $29.99; Blu-ray, $44.99 Available on VOD beginning March 18 Disney's clever, heartwarming Rapunzel riff "Tangled" was a surprise smash back in 2010, setting the stage for last year's billon-dollar-grossing, multi-Oscar-winning Snow Queen revamp "Frozen," and - if all goes well - a renewed emphasis on animation at the studio synonymous with the medium. At the least, between the grosses and the accolades, it's pretty clear that "Frozen" will have lasting impact on the generation of children who are going to grow up watching it over and over, while belting out the hit song "Let It Go" into their bedroom mirrors.

Californians aren't depending quite as heavily on cars for commutes and errands as they did a decade ago, according to a new survey by Caltrans. Although driving is still by far the most dominant mode of transportation across the state, accounting for about three-quarters of daily trips, researchers say a decrease in car usage and a rise in walking, biking and taking transit indicate that Californians' daily habits could be slowly changing....

Gov. Jerry Brown has 150 days to decide whether Manson family member Bruce Davis -- convicted for his role in the murder of two men in 1969 -- should go free after he was issued a grant of parole. Davis was convicted in 1972 for his role in the murders of ranch hand Donald “Shorty” Shea, who also worked as a Hollywood stuntman, and aspiring musician Gary Hinman. Brown blocked his release last year, concluding that Davis, who was 26 at the time of the killings,  still posed a threat to society.

SURPRISE, Ariz. - Adrian Gonzalez drew another walk Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals, his fourth in 26 plate appearances this spring. This is by design. "I'm not going to go up there looking for a walk, but I do think I can get back to walking more," Gonzalez said. Gonzalez led the major leagues in walks in 2009 with 119. He drew a combined 89 walks over the last two seasons, including 47 last year. Gonzalez attributes the decrease to the change in players around him. In 2009, he was playing for the light-hitting San Diego Padres, who offered him little protection in the lineup.

Another week, another step along the path to Terminus for our far-flung survivors on "The Walking Dead. " There's no question now that this mysterious sanctuary known as Terminus appears to be the end point for this season's arc, as we've witnessed each member of Rick's former crew stumble across the direction signs and head in that direction. And with just three episodes to go before season's end, it's a safe bet that the crew won't get there until the finale. So how to spend the final few hours of Season 4?

They aren't sure what his name is and they don't know where he went. But Fontana police have a photograph of the 40-year-old man who was "secured" in an interview room Monday but still managed to escape and stroll out of the police station. Detectives say the man who calls himself Ramon Torres and Ramon Martinez Ramirez "goes by many aliases. " Police were investigating a verbal altercation that occurred Sunday when the suspect pulled a gun and threatened to kill people inside a house as he attempted to collect rent for a third party.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Four batters into an expected two-inning stint, Angels reliever Dane De La Rosa gave up a walk, a hit batsman, a single and a grand slam to Dodgers left fielder Scott Van Slyke. And that wasn't even the worst part of his afternoon in Tempe Diablo Stadium. The 6-foot-7, 245-pound right-hander was pulled from Thursday's 4-4, 10-inning exhibition tie because of forearm tightness and was sent for an MRI exam. If the injury is serious, it would be a considerable blow to the Angels bullpen.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., obviously is a great adherent of the adage, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. " On Monday his committee released another attack on Medicaid, one of the linchpins of the Affordable Care Act and one that for some reason is especially detested by conservatives, like the majority members of Ryan's committee. The attack is buried within the Ryan committee's 204-page assault on the War on Poverty , which has just observed its 50th anniversary, as we reported in January . If you want to skip to the meat, the Medicaid section starts on Page 103. Austin Frakt and Aaron Carroll have done the heavy lifting of dismantling the Ryan attack point by point.
